IPS Mentorship Program 

Also, please consider participating in the IPS Mentorship Program.  Through the IPS Mentorship Program, we offer a great opportunity to network with foreign lawyers and JD, LLM and PhD students from across the world as well as our section members with a broad range of international legal experience.  Please see the details of our “Mentorship Program” page of the Global Gavel.

How to Sign up for the Mentorship Program – For Practitioners
Please complete the form at the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/9SV9BkbSEKowsB9w2.  Practitioners do not have to be IPS members in order to sign up to be a mentor.

How to Sign up for the Mentorship Program – For Students
Please go to this web form https://goo.gl/forms/4aq99ZmJQVoKWnxh1 to request to be matched with a mentor.

The Mentorship Program is an opportunity to make a meaningful connection.  The foreign lawyer/law student participants tend to be motivated, high achievers who already have or are striving for positions with leading companies, law firms and government agencies, and are pursuing degrees at US law schools in order to advance their careers.  You will not only build a valuable relationship, you’ll also be giving back to the international and local legal communities.

 

This information is also available via the IPS listserv and on the “Upcoming Events” page of the Global Gavel and the IPS LinkedIn.

We look forward to seeing you!
